CommitCRM Web Interface is an Internet/Intranet-based application employing the latest technologies that enable your employees and customers to access data in CommitCRM through a standard Web browser.
IT professionals may spend most of their time out of the office. Typically, you work at client sites and from home, and need to keep up to date with your schedules, assigned tickets and tasks, customer information and more. This is where CommitCRM Web Interface comes in to play.
CommitCRM Web Interface comes as two modules:
CommitCRM Web Interface for Employees
This module enables employees to access CommitCRM data remotely using a Web browser and their Web username/password. They can then manage (view/add/edit) various types of information in CommitCRM including: Accounts, Tickets, Appointments, Tasks, Charges (Labor, Parts and Expenses), Assets and History Notes. They can also view other information including Items, Contracts, Sales Opportunities, and more.
Web users can be defined for all Active Employee records in CommitCRM, and permission to use the Web interface can be granted or denied to certain employees.

Customer Web Portal
This module enables the creation of unlimited customer Web users (multiple users can even be defined for each customer/account). Using a browser, your customers will be able to login to CommitCRM remotely and view data which is relevant to them, including open Tickets, closed Tickets and scheduled technician visits. Customers can also log new tickets which will automatically receive a ticket number and enter the Received Tickets queue in CommitCRM.
You can receive email alerts whenever a customer creates a new ticket, or updates an old one, via the Customer Web Portal.
Customer Web Portal is a simple, clear and easy to understand interface. Your staff and customers will quickly feel comfortable with the program with a minimum of training.
From a technical perspective, CommitCRM Web Interface runs on your server as a Windows service and serves incoming requests from employees or customers who are logged in. For maximum security, you can configure Microsoft IIS as the back end for the Web interface and use your SSL certificates so that encrypted Https: connections will be used.
CommitCRM Web Interface’s look is customizable. With a few HTML changes to the basic settings, you can customize the interface to display your company name, logo and contact information on every page.
CommitCRM Web Interface is Responsive and is optimized for mobile devices including phones and tablets/iPad. The mobile display allows you to easily view and manage tickets, get customer contact details, log time and parts charges and much more directly from your phone.
By using CommitCRM Web Interface you will:
Increase efficiency by letting remote technicians manage their assigned tickets, schedules and tasks, add new charges for labor and parts, capture customer signature on tickets, view customer information, and much more
Save costs by reducing the number of customer “status” phone calls since they can view their status and log new tickets online
Improve your service by providing online data to customers 24/7/365
Increase customer satisfaction!
